If it's been nine years, it's time to renew your registration
If your trademark has been registered for 9 years, it's time to file a renewal—you have one year following that 9-year anniversary to renew.

Renewing your trademark registration (also called a "Section 9" filing) is required by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for trademark owners to maintain their trademark rights.
Renewals are due every 10 years after registration. If no renewal is filed, your registration will be canceled.
Because the time for filing a Section 9 Renewal coincides with the time for filing a ten-year Section 8 Declaration of Continued Use, the filing is combined.
